MABL's Silent Protest

On June 8, 2020, as the judicial system continued the constitutionally required due process of determining the guilt of one of the four officers involved in the murder of George Floyd, MABL and its supporters stood firmly in solidarity with Mr. Floyd, his family, and all those fighting in the quest for justice.

Join MABL in the fight for justice and racial equality.
